Sustainable Fisheries

Preserving fish stocks is vital, but the EU must also pay attention to the workers who bring our fish from sea to plate. We’re teaming up with EFFAT for a project developing a vision of decent work along the fisheries supply chain.

Climate Change

Human activity is making our planet warmer, and the transport sector is partly responsible. One reason is the low prices which social dumping and exploitation allow, creating excessive demand for cheap transport services. We call for urgent action to reduce the environmental impact of transport, coupled with a fair and just transition for affected workers.

TRENDS – Global changes shaping the future of our industry (April 2017)

The EU co-funded ETF project TRENDS – anticipating the impact of changes in transport on employment, working conditions, professions and skills took place in the period November 2015 to April 2017. The project’s main aim was to develop a strategy to anticipate changes in the transport sector regarding economic developments & globalisation, technological change: automation & digitalisation, demographic change and climate change. These changes will all impact transport employment, working conditions, skills needs and will bring a shift in the transport professions.

The analysis of major developments related to the four and trends is published in a study you can find in English, French and German. The discussion paper TRENDS – Anticipate and Act is available in English, French, German, Romanian and Turkish. It summarises the study and develops suggestions for trade union actions.
